Subject: My 2nd Show ...
2017 EDIT - In Row Jimmy, when Bobby says "CAN'T HIT A MOVING TARGET, HUH?" he is talking to Brent about trying to harmonize on the chorus. Jerry's vocal is all over the place.

Of particular note is Brent's Keyboards which seem to sing a sweet lullaby, accompanying Jerry, who of course, has decided to bring it on that early September evening.
More than anything for me in particular, I find myself eyeing the setlist in accordance with my life and how the peaks and valleys match up to the songs played.
The first set features a solid Jack Straw opener, having my Mama talk to me, and even being told to let my life proceed by it's own design. Each sung and played with a nod to the past and an eye towards the future, I couldn't have written a better script if I tried.
After the break we have a Jam which starts with the morals of Terrapin and ends light years later with a traditional dance tune. Even the intermittent Drums>Space speaks to me as well, an infant at the time with room ahead to Let it Grow.
I didn't know it at the time, but the Grateful Dead would have a profound impact on my life, a soundtrack to the years which have passed since that first day on September 2, 1979. To be able to listen to this each year on the respective anniversary is a testament to the uniting bond which was established 36 years ago and remains as strong as ever!
Subject: bread crumb
New Minglewood Blues appears in about 20% of shows. Which is weird, because Bobby sings this version like he's relearning the lyrics. I wish I knew why.
Jerry must've had Nobody's Fault on the brain, this is second time in the course of a week or so that he rolls that out of a jam. Didn't like it enough to sing it though...not really the dead's vibe anyway.

the Let It Grow alone ...
Subject: I wuz there....
Subject: I was there & many stories to tell
Augusta, Maine and Lewiston Maine...best shows
Even the campsite was a rockin' post-show event. Augusta was Proper, but Lewiston and Oxford were downsized Woodstocks. (Highgate, VT was my last ride and we rented an RV for that one....30-something years later) Dead On in "Vacationland"

Priceless, another under-looked show from fall 79'. Obviously this is a special show.
Subject: sometimes the lights all shinin on meeee
Subject: Terrapin>Let It Grow
Subject: GREAT show!!!
When the band came out of Terrapin, I remember telling the girl that I had gone with, "Wow...it's just like a plane coming in for a landing!!" Not sharing my enthusiasm or mental state, she had NO IDEA what I was talking about. Her loss.
Subject: Excellent 79 show
A few AUD splices but nothing to worry about - well worth a listen!
